A Broward Sheriff’s Office Fire Rescue helicopter crashed into an apartment building in Pompano Beach this morning, Monday August 28. This evidently took place in the area of north Dixie Highway and Atlantic Boulevard just southwest of the Pompano Beach Airpark at approximately 8:45 a.m. Three people were on board, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. The crash left a gaping hole in the roof.

Later it was reported that Captain Terryson Jackson passed away. Evidently, a woman in the apartment complex, yet unnamed also passed away.

This statement was released by BSO: “With a heavy heart, we announce the untimely loss of a longtime employee, Captain Terryson Jackson, who passed away this morning, August 28, 2023, after a BSO Department of Fire Rescue and Emergency Services helicopter crashed in Pompano Beach. Captain Jackson proudly served the people of Broward County for 19 years. He began his fire rescue career in March 2004 in Deerfield Beach and joined the BSO family in October 2011 when the two agencies merged.
As a flight paramedic, he impacted the community daily, providing critical patients with the highest pre-hospital care. He consistently showed an unmatched passion for the job. He always provided expert care, compassion and reassurance to those during their most significant time of need. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Jackson family during this difficult time. His BSO family will forever carry on his legacy.”

Posted on 28 August 2023 by JLusk

The following did not take place in the Deerfield Beach area, but it is important to be aware of, if traveling down toward Lauderhill.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office Special Victims Unit is releasing a composite sketch of a man who sexually assaulted and attempted to kidnap a woman in unincorporated Broward County. Detectives are also releasing surveillance video of the subject’s vehicle. 
The vicious crime occurred around 3 a.m., on Saturday, Aug. 12, near the 2900 block of West Sunrise Boulevard. The adult female victim told investigators she was sitting on a curb when an unknown man driving a dark-colored pick-up truck stopped and offered her money in exchange for sex. The victim declined the subject’s offer and began walking away. Detectives say that’s when the man got out of the vehicle, grabbed the victim’s arm, and forced her into the car. 
According to investigators, the victim fought the unknown man and managed to exit the pick-up truck. However, the subject regained power over the victim outside the vehicle and sexually assaulted her. 
During the traumatic ordeal, the victim broke free, ran to a local business and called 911. 
Surveillance video from the area captures the victim running for help following the horrific incident. It also captures the subject’s vehicle following the woman as she desperately searches for someone to help her. The car is then seen fleeing the location as the woman enters the business.
